Kind Words and Awards




This father-daughter duo is a dynamic team of photographers to work with! We met Sarah and Terry at the Bridal Expo in early January 2016 and their work just stood out. They do beautiful work and the photographs they had on display was definitely eye catching but what made us make the decision to go with them was their professionalism and their timely responses to all of our inquiries. There was no pressure to book right away, they offered us options and they were easy to work with! On the day of our wedding, 12/10/16, they showed up on time, they were ready to work and made everyone in our Bridal party feel comfortable. Terry doesn’t run out of energy! From start to finish, he made us all laugh while taking photos. The photos we wanted were mostly action shots so they ensured our wish was granted! Terry and Sarah, your beautiful work will be a constant reminder of how much fun everyone had at our special day. Thank you for helping us capture such a wonderful memory for us! You two are THE BEST! Chryschia (and Rusty) Brown


I don’t have enough good things to say about Carolina Media Star! We used them for Engagement Pictures, Bridal Portrait and the day of the wedding…they were AMAZING! Terry and Sarah did our wedding shoot and they were so easy to get along with and were just the nicest people. Terry did the wedding, bridal portrait and engagement pictures and just really knew how to get us to open up. He really knew what was going to give the best picture and how to put us at ease through all of it. Sarah is not only a shooter, but she is who you book times through, etc. She is fantastic and always right on top of what needs to be done! I loved working with them and would absolutely recommend them to anyone that is looking! Thank you Sarah, Terry and Carolina Media Star! You guys were fantastic and really helped capture so many amazing memories for us!

When my (now) husband and I started wedding planning in November 2016, we were WAY behind for our June 2017 wedding date! We booked our venue, and the owner/director told us that if we didn’t have a photographer yet, we HAD to check out Carolina Mediastar! With one glance of their website, we immediately sealed the deal 🙂 Terry shot our engagement pictures, and to say we had fun is a complete understatement!! We obviously were only supposed to have a set amount of time for our pictures, but he never once made us feel rushed or looked at his watch as if we were being a pain (even though I know we were!!), and he really helped us enjoy our shoot with his great personality! Sarah and Josh were the lucky ones to come shoot our big day, and I honestly cannot say enough about these two! Again, they brought out the absolute BEST in every image we received. They were fun and interactive with all of our guests, and they had our crazy sense of humor, which made them that much MORE enjoyable to work with!! Sarah is SUPER responsive to emails, texts, and phone calls, which made our process completely stress-free. And although it felt like forever to get our final pictures back, I can promise you it was worth the wait!! You can definitely see the love and effort they put into the editing process to make sure every picture looks like something from a magazine!! There is a reason these guys have the rating they have…I promise you will not be disappointed in this team! They are amazing!! 🙂


These guys are simply THE best. Exceptional service all along the way, from first email all the way to the album production. Amazing and personalized shots – I told them what I wanted and they delivered. And a beautiful album to top it off. They are extremely professional and friendly. They even helped fixing my mom’s shoes (which ripped during the ceremony). So glad I had them doing the photos for my wedding.

From Ashton’s Mom (Bride’s Mom): “Mark and I want to express a very special “thank you” to you and James for the fantastic job with the bridal portraits, wedding, and reception. Ashton’s portrait is just PHENOMENALLY BEAUTIFUL and elegant! You perfectly captured her personality and grace, just as effectively as you did in the absolutely stunning cascading display of her gown in that breathtaking angle on the staircase of the Grand Marquise Ballroom. You are TRULY gifted. We sincerely appreciate all of your attention to detail and the desire to fulfill her “vision.” VERY WELL DONE!! Again, a sincere “thanks” for being such a wonderful asset to her “event of a lifetime.” We excitedly await seeing the photographs from the wedding. The setting was just magical and know the photographs will reflect it. It was TRULY A PLEASURE.”


Wedding ImageDear Terry, Sarah and The Carolina MediaStar Family: Carolina MediaStar you’re the best! I want to thank you for the wonderful, outstanding, marvelous (I could go on and on) job that you did with our wedding album and video. It was truly a pleasure to work with each of you throughout the wedding day. You turned what I thought would be a stressful day into a fun and laid-back event. Simply put, the photographs were perfect. I could not imagine or ask for anything better! They were everything Anthony and I wanted them to be and more. They truly captured the story of the day and I can remember what I was thinking and feeling in almost all of them. You made everyone feel and look like stars! Thank you so much for your FABULOUS style of photography. The Happy Couple, Anthony & Wanda

Beach Wedding_IMG_4490 TCarolina Mediastar is an exceptional team that captures each moment so that you will have the memory for a lifetime. Sarah and Terry did a superior job of making our entire bridal party, family, and friends feel comfortable which created very natural pictures. They were able to catch each detail that we spent so much time planning. In addition, their photography is creative and artistic giving you a viewpoint you may never have thought of. Their price is a steal for the quality and professionalism that they provide. We are so grateful to them for their amazing work. We would highly recommend them to any bride and plan to refer all of our friends in the area.

Barclay Villa_MG_6606 SThe wonderful photographers at Carolina Media Star really made my wedding spectacular. They were so skilled and professional from the moment I called them on the phone and even now. I had my wedding 3 months ago and every time I look at the photos they took at the wedding, it brings back all of the memories. Several of my family and friends have made the photos Carolina Media Star took at my wedding as their profile pictures. I would hire them again in an instant! My whole bridal party LOVED interacting with the Sarah, Josh, and the crew! The pictures they took really captured the magic of my wedding!

_MG_6436 TThey were absolutely wonderful. Terry was humerous and entertaining while he photographed. Sarah was wonderful- always returning my emails and even doing a late night phone interview to accommodate my busy schedule. The photos were beautiful. I hope to work with them more in the future. We were so happy and fortunate that we found them. We had heard other couples issues with their photographers-we never worried about a thing.

_MG_4241 SCarolina Mediastar photographers are absolutely amazing!! They are pleasant to work with and Sarah professionally listens and helps customers. Most importantly, both my engagement photos and wedding photos came out BEAUTIFUL and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!! I am so glad I chose Carolina Mediastar! :)
